Gravetye Manor is a truly enchanting place; both close to the pleasures of London, yet far from its hustle and bustle. This beautiful Elizabethan manor sits proudly amongst the winding pathways and abundant flower beds in the English natural and wild gardens created by William Robinson, the father of the English natural garden and a former owner of the estate.

This quintessential English country house's charm is evident in the wood panelled restaurant with crackling log fires. All year round, the sweeping countryside views, first-

class cuisine and attentive yet unobtrusive service ensure an unforgettable experience.
